About this title


This is collection of photographs of some of the most influential post-war artists, novelists, musicians, critics, poets and actors, including Duke Ellington, Alice Neel, Edward Albee, Man Ray, Louis Armstrong, Klaus Kinski and Frank Stella. They are often candid and reveal the subject in a wide variety of situations and moods. The accompanying text discusses the role portrait photography plays in the historical record and in our collective visual memory and its role in fulfilling our curiosity about what the people of a certain time looked like. The author explores Ponsold's personality and craft, which in her view, enables her to capture her subjects so as to reveal the essence of each of them. Renate Ponsold has exhibited in many galleries in the USA and Europe. Her photographs have appeared in the "New York Times Magazine", "Art News" and "Arts". Dore Ashton has published over 21 books and many articles on the arts.
